Wind, Wave, and Temperature Data
Spotter collects 3D displacement time series and water temperature data. The 2D wave spectrum, surface wind velocity, and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) are calculated and stored onboard, and user-selected data is transmitted through satellite to the Spotter Dashboard.
Compact & Portable
Spotter can be shipped anywhere around the world, carried by hand, and deployed without any special equipment.
Self-contained, low maintenance, and always ready to go.
